Review

The DS 9 is impressively refined and – in plug-in hybrid form – makes plenty of financial sense as a company car, thanks to its low CO2 emissions and highly competitive P11d value. However, it doesn’t offer the cosseting ride that you might expect, rear-seat comfort is disappointing and the infotainment system is well off the pace.

get the best price

This premium trim level gives you ventilated front seats with a massage function and a 360-degree camera system, but the less expensive Performance Line is better value overall.
